HHS Awards $256.6 Million to Expand and Restore Access to Equitable and Affordable Title X Family Planning Services Nationwide

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded $256.6 million in grant funding to support 76 grantees to deliver equitable, affordable, client-centered, and high-quality family planning services. These grants will restore access to Title X services nationwide and fill service gaps caused by more than a quarter of Title X providers withdrawing from the program over the past two and a half years in response to the previous administration’s Title X rule.

“These awards mark the first time since September 2019 when vital Title X services are available nationwide,” said HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra. “As communities face unyielding assaults on reproductive health care, I am proud that our nation can help bolster access to essential health and family planning services.”

In October 2021, HHS issued a new regulation, “Ensuring Access to Equitable, Affordable, Client-Centered, Quality Family Planning Services,” that reinforced Title X’s emphasis on quality, equity, and access for all individuals who seek high-quality family planning services.

“For more than 50 years, Title X family planning clinics have provided breast and cervical cancer screening, contraceptive counseling and care, and STI/HIV testing and treatment to low-income or uninsured individuals,” said ADM Rachel L. Levine, Assistant Secretary for Health. “This announcement delivers on the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to restore access to affordable, quality family planning services.”

“Title X, which has perhaps never been more crucial in our nation’s history, is a lifeline to quality sexual and reproductive health care, including patient-centered care for LGBTQI+ individuals,” said Jessica Swafford Marcella, HHS Deputy Assistant Secretary for Population Affairs. “Today’s awards support providers across the country, who tirelessly dedicate themselves to the Title X program and the clients under their care.”

Title X is the only federal grant program dedicated solely to providing individuals with comprehensive family planning and related preventive health services. The program supports a diverse network of clinics including state and local health departments, federally qualified health centers, hospital-based sites, and other private nonprofit and community-based health centers.
